The Book

Sonia, a sweet caring little girl, is stressing about her mother's return to work.  Her mother is a hairdresser and there is an ominous virus lurking everywhere.  Sonia is worried that her mom might come in contact with it and get sick.  Always resourceful Sonia decides to make a list of important things that will keep her mother safe. 

She runs to her desk upstairs and focuses on various strategies and solutions that her mother will need to put into practice.  When she presents her thoughtful suggestions to her mum, her mum is very impressed.

"Sonia, this is brilliant!'  Mum says proudly.  "I'll need to show this to all my friends at the hair salon!  We'll definitely keep everyone safe if we do haircuts like this!"  

" Dad hugs Sonia. "You're going to be an inventor when you grow up!" 

This timely book is perfect to share at this time.  It is sure to spark conversations and solutions to what families are experiencing in so many places around the world.  Discussions will calm fears and offer positive, constructive action in this very scary and problematic time.  The wonderful illustrations are entertaining, kid-friendly and 

relatable.  I enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.

Meet the Author

Linda Steinbock is a humanitarian aid worker of Swedish and Malay Singaporean descent. She attended university in Melbourne, Australia and began working for an NGO, supporting children and families affected by conflict, typhoons, earthquakes and tsunamis. Her work also involved research into how children are affected by crisis, never more so than during the Covid-19 pandemic. It was while quarantined in Singapore that Linda came up with the idea of a children's picture book which illustrates how the power of human connection can overcome adversity, and how even distanced relationships can continue to lift us up during these anxious times. Through her book and her website, Linda hopes to create a space where others can share how they've overcome isolation and enhanced connection with those they love, and to foster discussion about long distance, multi-cultural friendships and relationships.
